I am not one much for souvenirs, but this place is worth a visit for a few reasons. If you look in the shops you can find high quality fashions such as handmade clothing and embroidered item that are very difficult to find anywhere else. An example is Soul Lei by the Sea Elephant Walk. The prices are high but... More

Unfortunately the Coconut Marketplace is a shadow today of the upmarket mall it once was in 1986 when I last visited. It is very reduced in size and many shops are shut. However there are signs that rebuilding is planned and hopefully it will recover it's lost glory. There are still a few good quality tourist shops there including an... More

This shopping area has a few different shops and a new ABC store. We did some shopping at ABC and they are very friendly. The other shops looked amazing, but we ran out of time. They were also doing some updates to the shopping center when we visited.

The Coconut Marketplace used to have a lot of wonderful shops, like Grande's Gems and Lappert's Ice Cream. Right now, it's more than half empty due to major reconstruction, and it's unclear which ones will be back. My favorite shop is still there, though - Bodacious - which has nice women's aloha wear for all sizes. I particularly like their... More

I'm giving this shopping center a 5 because of what it will be very soon. Currently it rates a 3.0 or a 3.5. There are currently about 10 small shops that are very good for typical souvenirs and above average clothes. Plus, ABC opened a store here. Renovations are scheduled to be complete by end of year or shortly thereafter.... More

There are very few shops in the market place. There is construction going on, so I am sure that it will expand soon. Abc is the anchor store of the marketplace. There were different free events while we were staying on the island, such as a farmers market and free Hawaiian music.

We were staying near here, and the only business that we could find that was open was a farmers market on Tuesday and Thursday, which I would highly recommend for fresh fruits and homemade coffee cake.

Over the years, most businesses have moved out, so there isn't much left to do there. Had a quick dinner there one night on my last trip and was totally disappointed. I used to shop and eat there all of the time, and enjoy the free hula show they had in the plaza. Those times are long gone, I am... More
